Decorative Trays

Antique trays of all kinds are wonderful accessories for our homes.  Not only are they functional, but they make a lovely addition to a tabletop or ottoman.  I’ve even seen them hung on a wall.  Serving trays were made of both wood and silver, but I’ve very partial to the old English butler’s trays.

The patina of these old trays is so appealing, and the often-added bit of inlay or marquetry is wonderful, too.  This one could be propped up against the wall on a chest to add interest and texture.
